Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center virtually on Friday, November 19, from 12:00 p.m. – 12:30 p.m. ET to hear from Tim Holt, member of the executive board and labor director for Siemens Energy, on the role of the private sector in enabling the energy transition necessary to achieve ambitious climate agendas defined at COP26. Randy Bell, senior director and Richard Morningstar Chair for Global Energy Security at the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center, will moderate the discussion.

Following the conclusion of COP26 in Glasgow, there is a renewed and heightened commitment by the global community to address the climate crisis. A foundational element to meeting the moment is leveraging the strength of the private sector and promoting the necessary environment for progress, and energy companies play an integral role in this cultivation. This conversation will feature a discussion on the clean energy build-out necessary to meet enhanced climate ambition and the role that companies such as Siemens Energy play in multilateral climate cooperation and achievement.

Please join this conversation via the web application Zoom, which is accessible through your web browser, the Zoom desktop or mobile app, and by phone.
